Five podiums on nine stages. This is more than a happy ending for Rafael Andriato and Wilier Triestina – Southeast at Tour of Hainan that saw the german Max Walscheid winning the last stage.
Great team work also today with all the riders working hard for their captain, a scene that we have seen all along the week where we were able to race at the same level of the World Tour teams.
Today the podium arrived despite a bad move from the australian Jones that pushed Andriato on the crash barriers. This move costed him the third place that the jury gave to the brazilian in a top 10 that is completed also by the stagiaire Raileanu, 8th.
The consistance of Andriato is confirmed by the second place in the points classification while in the general classification the best of our riders was Giuseppe Fonzi, 16th
